I had my chicks in the house for two weeks this coming Tuesday. I took them out yesterday for the first time and they loved it. So I took them out today and while we had to leave for an hour, I left them in the coop locked up. They love it. So much bigger than their brooder. I did take the heat lamp out - but temps have been 60-70 and nice. Getting down to 45-50 at night, but with the lamp...do you think they will be ok? I do have a window that I can check on them. Did not think I would take them out for another 2 weeks, but they seem so happy! Also - what about blocking the nesting boxes so they cannot go in until laying time? There is no bedding in there, they did jump in but did not hang out too long in the boxes.
